We had a great time on Sunday at the Third Annual National Plug In Day, and we were glad to be able to step up and organize (and co-corporate-sponsor) this year’s event. We acknowledge it was different from the two previous years (it rained and everyone was happy about it), but from watching the field-trip of students who stopped in to talk with owners for a school project on plug-in electric, we’re certain the future is strong for EV technology.
Brian’s Saturn looked great with the new lithium batteries, and Ben’s Jeep conversion presented nicely alongside the off-the-shelf EV models .
Austin EV (full disclosure – Cara) wrote a summary of the day and it’s available on the Austin EV website:
We’re not sure if we’ll be sponsoring next year’s event (it was a lot of work!) but any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
